Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder Announced as NBA ELite 2011 Cover Athlete

With NHL announcing their cover boy, it seemed only fitting that NBA Elite’s cover was announced today as well. Instead someone from the championship team however, EA choose an up-and-coming NBA Superstar, Kevin Durant from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Durant was the 2008 Rookie of the Year, and on the 2010 Scoring Champion along with an All-Star appearance. I think this is an excellent choice for the cover.

NBA Elite 11 is due in stores on October 5.
